I love stuffed peppers! I wanted to try something a little different and started creating this new recipe. What a hit this was. It is savory and not too spicy. Just right! My recipe calls for 8 peppers, but you can half the recipe if you like.
First, brown the ground beef, onions, garlic and celery. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
Next, add the package of Zatarain's Dirty rice, rotel tomatoes and 1 can of tomato sauce, simmer until the liquid is absorbed and rice is done. Keep the pot covered.
Stuff the peppers with the rice mixture and place them in a baking dish. Open the other can of tomato sauce and put 2 tablespoons of sauce on each pepper. Cover with foil and bake for one hour at 350 degrees.
Remove the peppers from the oven. Put cheese on top and [lace back in the oven uncovered until the cheese melts.
